Truth be told I know Paris well and I keep coming back to Hotel Brighton. Why? Location and a magnificent view of the Louvre, Tuileries Gardens and the Eifel Tower. Having said that, one puts a precondition of getting a room with the said view. If you don't get a room with the said view, you don't have to stay at the Brighton. Also, besides your request for a room with the Tuileries Garden view, I'd recommend to ask for a room on the 3rd or 4th floor for a number of reasons. Namely, the view is better and there is less noise albeit the latter should not be a major concern. On the downside, rooms vary considerably so I would suggest to ask for a superior or executive room. The advertised renovation is not total and bathroom amenities are minimal (no shampoo or conditioner). The style is classic, but not too "frumpy". The beds are large and very comfortable. WiFi is free in the rooms, but apparently not all rooms have good reception. During my stay, I saw at least 3 guests on the corridors striving to get a good signal. To be fair though, my room had acceptable signal albeit not everywhere. Breakfast is decent and the service is overall good. Is this the best hotel in Paris? No. Is it the coolest hotel in Paris? Far from it, but is has one of the best locations and views of the city. An alternative option is to choose the Meurice which is located a few meters down the road, but it will set you back quite a few hundred dollars more per night (I believe it must be triple the price). So, if you are on a budget (to avoid misunderstandings, this is not a cheap hotel), as a conclusion, I'd strongly recommend the Hotel Brighton provided that you get a room with a Tuileries Garden view, and do not expect a cool, modern design hotel (eg Philip Stark), or the grandeur of a Leading Hotel of the World.
